The elementary OS team are hard at work developing version 5.1 of their operating system. Several changes are planned for 5.1, including Flatpak integration with the software centre, as well as side-loading Flatpak packages. A new greeting application is in the works and, sometime in the future, the developers are planning to replace the Ubiquity system installer. "In an effort to get 5.1 out to users more quickly, we’ve decided to bump the new installer to a future release. Too many issues remain with the integration right now, and the existing Ubiquity installer—while perhaps a bit long in the tooth—continues to work as it always has. This means 5.1 will be focused around five key areas: A brand new Greeter and Onboarding experience. Flatpak support with Sideload and AppCenter. Major updates around accessibility and System Settings. Iterative improvements across several apps.
The latest hardware enablement and support. Under the hood, 5.1 will also bring an entirely new process for building ISOs that is faster, better documented, and more reproducible." Further details can be found on the distribution's blog.
